UA marketing class gives people "Food for Thought" on hate speech

A marketing class at the University of Arizona is holding an event tonight to educate students on hate speech. 

The "Food for Thought" event is Marketing 425's project for the Anti-Defamation League's EdVenture Program.

April 25, from 4:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. Tyndall Avenue between Speedway and 1st Ave. will be closed down for a banquet style meal and discussion.

The class has assembled people from different backgrounds to discuss their experiences with hate speech, including members of the Islamic Center of Tucson.

The center was vandalized last year when someone went inside and did property damage including destroying Qurans.

Tucson Mayor Jonathon Rothschild will also attend and speak at the event.
